The most important thing is that you like your subject area! It?s also important to do as well as you can throughout your degree. For example, I applied for PhD scholarship during my final year, so they were looking at my first, second and third year results. Finally, I find that liking people helps a lot.

Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

Celtic Pure Creates New Jobs for Monaghan

The Irish mineral water company Celtic Pure have unveiled plans for their €5m new bottling facility. The Celtic Pure plant, located on the outskirts of Corcreagh in Monaghan, will create up to 60 new jobs during the construction phase of the expansion, as well as 25 new jobs when the facility is operational.

There are currently 50 people employed at the plant.

Chief Executive of Celtic Pure, Padraig McEneaney said, "The investment in our facilities will further create 25 + new jobs, increase our annual production capacity by 65% and see our annual turnover rise twofold by 2017.

"Our target is to bring the business to the stage where we can target sales of €18 million to €20 million. We’ve come a long way since 2000, with only two employees, supplying local customers with water in 5 litre drums."

The company sold record volumes of bottled water last year in Ireland and worldwide through indirect exportation to China, United Arab Emirates, USA and Australia.
